Midweek Message 12-6-2017

God is looking for fence builders, not fence sitters.  There comes a time when we have to decide whether we are going to build or just sit and watch others build. In the Old Testament, Nehemiah ask God to let him go back to Jerusalem and rebuild the wall around the city.  When he gets there, he tells the people about how God has been gracious in working out the details for him to come back.  The people are motivated and they say, ” Let us start rebuilding.  So they began this good work.”  (Nehemiah 2: 18).    They trusted Nehemiah and they trusted that God would help them.  The work was not easy and sometimes they got discouraged , but they completed the work in 52 days.  Their faith saw them through.  James, Chapter 2 says that our faith is revealed by our actions and faith without action is dead.  So are we ready to build spiritual fence for God or are we content to just sit on the fence?  Paul said in his letter to the church in Ephesus, (2: 10)  We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do.”  God has some work for all of us to do.  Find out where God is working and let’s join Him.  God bless you all and “Keep Spurring”   Louis
